Tesla has begun selling the “Teslamic” in China in order to allow people to sing along more loudly while using the manufacturers’ “Caraoke” feature. The company introduced it during the rollout of a Chinese New Year software update, which adds a karaoke platform called Leishi KTV to their car infotainment systems.

The microphone automatically pairs with the infotainment system, according to Tesla.

The accessory also comes in a pack of two, perfect for when a driver and a loved one are stuck in traffic.

Teslamic costs around £120 but there are currently no plans to sell it outside of China.

Tesla Caraoke allows people to play and sing some of the most popular karaoke songs in the car.

Caraoke will display song lyrics directly on the screen without interfering with any critical information the driver needs to drive safely.

The songs can be played with vocals or without.

However, it doesn’t offer the ability to record singers, which is bound to disappoint would-be pop stars.

The feature is free to use although it does require Tesla’s Premium connectivity plan.

Meanwhile this week Tesla CEO Elon Musk disappointed those hoping for details on the company’s new products like the Cybertruck.

Instead, Musk focused on robots during the hour-long earnings call with investors.

But regarding the launch of the Cybertruck and the forthcoming Roadster, Musk said: “If we were to introduce new vehicles, our total vehicle output will decrease.

“We will not be introducing new vehicle models this year.”

Musk was also asked about the long-promised low-cost electric cars, to which he responded: “We are not currently working on a $25,000 car.”

“At some point, we will. We have enough on our plate right now. Too much frankly.

“If the price of our cars does not change at all, we would still sell all that we can make.”

Rather than cars, Musk talked up the company’s work on humanoid robots, or “Tesla Bots”.

He said: “So, in terms of priority of products, I think actually the most important product development we’re doing this year is actually the Optimus humanoid robot.

“This, I think, has the potential to be more significant than the vehicle business over time. If you think about the economy, it is — the foundation of the economy is labor. Capital equipment is distilled labor.

“So, what happens if you don’t actually have a labor shortage? I’m not sure what an economy even means at that point. That’s what Optimus is about. So, very important.”
